and the go north. the dignity and freedom was impossible to get and the mississippi of that era and when i say mississippi you have to think of the worst of the old south and the old confederacy where african-american life, was cheap and murdered by any white person and not be prosecuted and history of lynching, and like many african americans, the unequal economic and political power between the handful of plantation owners who ran the state and the lives of sharecroppers black and white were incredibly miserable with no future. like many african american families particularly in mississippi there came to be a point where after they had a large family with nine kids, farming families whether it is ireland or iowa or mississippi, farming families didn't have a lot of kids and they got to the point where the family realized for the four youngest children there was no future in mississippi and because of the draw of industry in the north was so strong, for african-americans to migrate to the great industrial centers of the north and west the west is sometimes forgotten in that way but certai

't meant to be in virginia. we've seen the same thing in mississippi, the governor there targeting the one remaining single abortion clinic in mississippi for special regular laegs. here what's he said about that. >> i think it's historic that today you see the first step in a movement i believe to do what we campaigned on, to say we're going to try to end abortion in mississippi. we're going to try to continue to work to try to end abortion in mississippi and this is an historic day to begin that process. >> abortion is legal. you can't ban it. it is a constitutionally protected right in this country. phil bryant and bob mcdonald do not have the power to change that. what they and republican lawmakers all over the country do have the power to do is cut off access to abortion. they can't make abortion illegal on paper, they can't strike down roe v. wade except by electing mitt romney, right, who will then pick supreme court judges who do that. but they can't make it so hard to get an abortion that it might as well be illegal. they can make the right to access abortion a right in name only.
